Yeast Culturing & Nutrients

Homebrew yeast is essential in crafting your own beer. Without a quality homebrew yeast, fermentation cannot take place and without fermentation, alcohol cannot be produced. We carry several yeast cultures and nutrients, bottles, stoppers, and the highly recommended Homebrew Yeast Starter Kit.

Yeast Starter Kit

We highly recommend making a yeast starter when using a Wyeast Activator or Propogator pack, even though a freshly swollen Activator will start 5 gallons of wort on its own. Our Homebrew Yeast Starter Kit will supply more yeast than an Activator pack can provide, assuring the fast start of fermentation. We offer our starter kits in both 1000 ML and 2000 ML capacities.

Stirstarter

The Stirstarter is a basic stir plate that will dramatically increase the rate of yeast growth in your yeast starter flask. Just put the included magnetic stir bar into the flask and place it on the plate. Spinning magnets in the plate cause the stir bar to rotate, agitating the yeast starter.

Yeast Nutrients

Along with products to aid in yeast starting, we also carry all your homebrew yeast nutrients and cultures. Servomyces is propagated in a micronutrient rich environment and is killed off prior to packaging. Wyeast beer yeast nutrient was designed specifically for beer fermentations and is extremely helpful when brewing sugar beers, mead, or making up a yeast starter.
